Oklahoma hires Georgia assistant Shane Beamer as assistant head coach for offense

The hire appears to fill Oklahoma's vacancy for a 10th on-field assistant. He's the son of one of the most-respected coaches in college football history. Before his time with the Bulldogs, Beamer coached at Virginia Tech under his dad and legendary coach Frank Beamer. Ruffin McNeill is now listed as an assistant head coach, as well as the team's defensive tackles coach. He'll work closely with head coach Lincoln Riley.

Shane Beamer is leaving Georgia to become the assistant head coach for offense at Oklahoma, sources told ESPN.

Georgia fined Shane Beamer $25,000 in his first season with the school after he was identified as having received opponent game plans before a 2014 Virginia Tech game against Wake Forest. He was a wide receiver from 1995-99. Beamer was an assistant coach at Mississippi State and SC from 2004-10.

As for the tight ends coaching title, there is another potential candidate on staff: Jay Johnson, the former Minnesota offensive coordinator who spent 2017 in an advisory role on Georgia's staff. While Johnson's background is as a quarterbacks coach, he could conceivably move over to coaching tight ends, if Smart wants to go that way.
